    There are some good and bad in the UK too. I never bought a Corn Snake from a pet shop, my first was from a couple who just didn't want her any more and put an ad in the paper and all the rest I bought direct from breeders. We have 2 shops in York that are part of the same big chain, one has a really bad reputation but the one I use for frozen rats is great, clean and all the animals are well cared for.

    yea and sadly a poor breeder of t's, snakes or any reptile never gets any attention.. all you see on the tv is "puppy mills" or "crazy cat lady"... those are awful as well but we need those in our hobby brought to justice as well

    I originally got my BP from one and used them for frozen feeders for a while. but now i order my feeders online to save myself some money and time.my bp when i first got him he had a stuck eye cap. I thought he was just blind in one eye at first which didnt make a differnce to me still enjoyed him and as long as he was fit other wise it wasnt a bother to me . Then realize It was a stuck cap which i ended up helping remove. Ive seen some good pet shops but they are independently owned.

    Nice sizs one to. I'd say atleast 8"from front of shell to the back. It was very relaxed I'm guessing it was used to being around people since it didnt try to move or get defensive. When i was not even a foot away from it when taking that photo. That was my first time seeing one in nature.

    No animal should be mistreated. But since insects reptiles,and amphibians keepers are looked at as being "weird" by the mainstream they dont get the public justice . The only time its mainly public is when they are trying to take animals from us from collecting by trying to ban animals.
